When starting out as a wedding planner it can sometimes be confusing in knowing what services to offer and which not to offer. In the video, I break down the various things to consider when you are deciding what service to offer and the various types of services.
According to www.weddingwire.com
A full-service wedding planner, also known as an all-inclusive wedding planner, is best for couples who want step-by-step guidance and a professional opinion from the get-go. According to the 2020 WeddingWire Newlywed Report, 31% of couples hire this type of wedding planner. Full-service planners are a great option if you don't have a lot of free time to dedicate to planning a wedding. They will be involved in every aspect of your to-do list, from helping you choose a wedding venue and handling vendor correspondence, to setting up escort cards and corralling your bridesmaids on the wedding day.
Month of Coordination:
A month-of planner to help ease the stress load during crunch time. On average, 16% of couples choose this type of wedding planner, according to WeddingWire data. You'll begin working with your month-of planner about four or five weeks before your wedding. They'll focus on handling miscellaneous, last-minute tasks, such as final contract negotiations, making vendor payments, and arranging deliveries (flowers, food, decor, etc.) for your wedding day. Let's face it, there is no such thing as day-of coordination. As a wedding planner, it is difficult to come in and execute flawlessly if you start working with the couple a few days before the wedding. Give yourself at least a month.
Partial planning in a lot of ways is similar to full planning but it is for a couple who has started their planning process but they need a professional to step in and continue the planning process. There are a few important things you need to consider when selecting this method of planning; watch the video for more.
Remember, the choice of what services you offer is up to you, you can choose to offer one, two, or all but whatever you do, make sure you weigh the pros and cons and your capacity to offer the service.
